On December 5, Cook County issued a notice to employees regarding the Minimum Wage Ordinance (MWO).

Effective January 1, 2023, the minimum wage for tipped workers increases to $7.80, in alignment with the Illinois State minimum wage. The minimum wage for non-tipped workers remains $13.35.

The updated “Notice to Employees” and “Frequently Asked Questions” documents are available here.

Employees who believe their employer is not paying the required minimum wage should first check to ensure the municipality where they work does not have a different minimum wage. If the municipality has not opted out, employees can file a complaint with the Cook County Commission on Human Rights. Complaint forms and additional information can be found online.

Mayor Ryan and the Village Trustees assisted the opportunity

to again bring more development to Alsip at 3600 W 127th St

where a steel plant stood many decades ago. This 8 acre  

multi-million investment will now be a 40,000sqft logistics

facility, looking fantastic when finished + bring more jobs!
